An inquest into the fires that burned in 2017 has ordered the RFS to work with farmers to improve communication during major bushfires.
The Coroner found that the origin of the fire was on the property known as ‘Flagview South’ Sir Ivan Dougherty Drive, Leadville. The cause of the fire was a lightning strike on or near the top of a wooden strainer fence post which caused the post to smoulder for a number of days before igniting the fire on 11 February 2017.
